Root surfaces of extracted human teeth with advanced periodontal disease were studied by the apically migrated junctional epithelium, the topography characteristic of uninvolved cementum was frequently masked by a surface coating. The thickness of the coating increased in a coronal direction where it often blended with calculus. The observations indicate that this surface coating may originate from the inflammatory exudate and corresponds to the dental cuticle. The findings also indicate that… CONTINUE READING
